Dr Ian Drysdale graduated from Queen Elizabeth College, London in 1971 with a BSc (Hons) Biochemistry/Physiology degree and went on to the Royal Postgraduate Medical School and Northwick Park Hospital to take a PhD in Clinical Endocrinology before embarking on the ND, DO course programme at the BCNO as an external student completing in 1980.

He started lecturing at the BCNO in 1971 whilst taking the PhD and he has stayed committed to the College ever since. He progressed from part-time to full-time lecturer and practitioner, to Vice-Dean, to Dean of Academic Studies and in 1990 to full-time Principal.  He is committed to maintaining and furthering high academic and clinical standards in Naturopathy and Osteopathy and believes that Continuing Postgraduate Development and Research are essential to the long term success of these disciplines.  He has lectured Anatomy and Physiology to BCOM students as well as guest lecturing at various other institutions in the UK and overseas. He has been involved in all BCOM degree validations and GOsC RQ events as well as acting as an External Advisor on university validation panels for degrees other than Osteopathy. As well as his administrative and academic responsibilities he is actively involved in research and supervises PhD students.
